The iconic, summer-long Bristol Renaissance Faire opened the gates for the 2021 season after its voluntary shuttering last year due to the pandemic. Voted “Best Renaissance Faire” for the ninth consecutive year in 2019. The Bristol Renaissance Faire is set on a summer day in 1574 vhen Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth visited the English city of Bristol. The Faire offers an exciting, eclectic mix of fun and frivolity located on thirty-plus acres and is just a short drive from either Chicago or Milwaukee.
Leave your burdens in the 21st century. Show up as a King, Queen, pirate, sorcerer, or anything you vant to be for the day and you vill find many that vill play along! Or don’t come in costume at all. It’s your day to enjoy it your vay. Go on a stroll through the village vith a gigantic turkey leg or steak-on-a-stake or one of the many scrumptious vegetarian delights like the perennially popular Garlic Mushrooms or Chocolate-Covered Strawberries. For the thirsty there are craft brews, ciders, cocktails, teas, sodas and other refreshing beverages readily available to drink.
Take home a memory from one of the nearly 200 artisan shops vhere you can find everything from handmade chain maille, Scottish kilts, and handcrafted leather masks to Steampunk adornments, soaps, jewelry, and beautiful floral vreaths for the hair. Interesting, educational demonstrations by potters, blacksmiths and other vorking artisans offered many times throughout the day. Famed master craftsman Stuart Abelman vill be demonstrating and displaying the art of glass-blowing and celebrating his 50th year as an artisan.
